Title: Musical Animation (from Drive-In Movie Ads)
Sound: Yes (enhanced)
Description: This is a color animated musical interlude used in between drive-in movie ads during intermission. Sort of rare because most of these films had built in advertisement. A simple animated musical piece apparently used for entertainment, possibly at the end of the evening. It's essentially 3 evening scenic shots, with three snowflakes in between and ends with a starry night sky. The classical music audio track was remixed, also added a fade in and out.
This clip is from a compilation of drive-in intermission films found here on Internet Archives in the Drive-In Movie Ads section. Most are color but there are a few black & whites because of their quality or uniqueness.
PLEASE NOTE: These clips have been modified from the originals. They have been carefully cropped to remove excess black frame while preserving as much of the actual image as possible. I've adjusted the brightness/contrast, and color correction to the best of my ability. Magenta tinted films were especially difficult. These clips are also louder than the originals. Volume has been increased. In some cases the audio track was separated and remixed in an audio editor to enhance the sound. The enhanced audio files are available for upload if requested.

Sentimental and cheap, but also quite beautiful.
I like it.
